Gelik Pilav

One of my favorite Turkish comfort foods – Kiymali Ispanak (Spinach with ground beef)

Kiymali Ispanak is one of my favorite Turkish comfort foods.  I made it often after my weekly trip to the pazar (bazaar) because I would want to use my fresh spinach right away.  It warms my belly and my heart each time I make it.  Memories of the rows and rows of fresh vegetables, fruits, cheeses and olives come back to me like they were just yesterday.  I can't believe it has been fifteen years since I have been back...
